Claim For Damp And Mould In Rented Property

Has your rented accommodation got damp and mould? Has your rented accommodation got a fusty smell? If you are living in a Council House or in a privately rented house your Landlord has a duty to check for damp to make sure your Premises are safe. If you suffer injury due to damp and mould in a rented property you may be able to make a claim for damp against your landlord (also known as a claim for damp).

Wall with Damp

 How can you tell if there is damp and mould in a rented property?

Damp will occur in a room which is warm, moist and highly humid.  The most likely options are the kitchen and bathrooms although you increase the risks if for example you dry your wet clothes in doors or do not open windows very often.  If damp builds up and you report it to your landlord but he fails to rectify the problem you may be able to make a claim for damp.  If the damp builds up to a certain level it could become toxic.

Are you suffering because of Damp?

If you have damp at your rented property you may be able to make a claim for damp or mould compensation.  Typical symptoms include:

  • Fungal infections
  • Sickness
  • Vomiting

If you have any of these symptoms for any period of time it is important that you speak to a medical expert as soon as possible.
